Re: Hexahog

BTW, I have both AXIS and EPIC by Rademic. Barely worth it for the nicely reasonable price. Neither is a tough solve, although the trick in AXIS is neat and not immediately obvious. I factor in their excellent appearance and finish work when I guardedly recommend them. EPIC is out of production thou...

Re: Hexahog

I know the review you mean, and I often disagree with his evaluations. He's usually at least excited by every puzzle... And he even does make a point of how fiddly the cage assembly is. Not enough to tone it down much, but for me that and other aspects make it a "pass". I could swear I just saw anot...

Re: Hexahog

You should search out the several reviews of this, but generally folks are not that impressed. And it's especially fiddly to assemble the outer shell.

Re: Aqua progress

Aqua was my first. One tricky spot wasn't too bad. Enjoyed it enough to grab a Bronze and a Titanium. Got near the end of the Ti before finally discovering what you have to do to get to the remaining part, and almost threw it down in disgust. I know lots of folks love how Chris torments you with "to...

Well, I am sure you'll end up getting a lot MORE than you paid :-).

Re: Titan Puzzle Padlock

I just spoke with Boaz yesterday. He said he got the parts in and should get a chance to work on the next batch by the end of the week. How can those of us who are interested find out when this next batch is ready? Like @ghxost mentioned, there's nothing to be found when you search for this... Than...

Re: Titan Puzzle Padlock

Diniar Namdarian made a "puzzle lock" out of 3D printed plastic which is more a take apart puzzle than a real puzzle lock, but for less than 20 euros, still worth adding to a puzzle lock collection. Lock'd In by Bryan Turner is a gem, sold on Grave Raven website I am still waiting for the 2nd batch...
